    A sports bar owner in Mankato revealed himself Sunday as the purchaser of "The Original Whizzinator," and he said he intends to use the device that made Onterrio Smith infamous to raise the profile of his own establishment.

    "I want to be the new training camp headquarters for the Vikings," said Matt Little, the owner of Buster's Sports Bar & Grill in Mankato.

    The Whizzinator will be encased in glass at his bar's memorabilia section next to jerseys of two Twin Cities sports superstars, Adrian Peterson and Justin Morneau.

    Little recalled his reaction when he heard the Shakopee Auction Center was going to sell the device, which Smith was caught possessing at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport in May 2005.

    "I thought, 'You got to be kidding me,' " Little said.

    But Little, who had a prior engagement, was determined to take ownership of the device, recruiting a purchaser and giving him a $1,000 budget.

    Little had someone place the winning bid of $750 for him Friday night at the Shakopee Auction Center.

    Now Little wants to reunite the Whizzinator with its original owner.

    "I got a guy who knows Onterrio, so we want to do a reunion," he said. "How classic would that be?"

    I'm not sure about raising the profile of his establishment, lowering it is more likely. And somehow I don't think his whizzinator will be any type of enticement for the Vikings.

    Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.

    "Hey man, where you wanna go eat?"

    "I don't know man."

    "Hey! How about that place with the Original Whizzinator?"

    "Heck yeah! Let's go!"
